Overview

"Fluid and Electrolytes provides a foundation of knowledge pertaining to this important topic. Students, registered nurses, and allied health personnel will benefit from the user-friendly format in which the basic concepts are presented." "Author Mary Baumberger-Henry, DNSc, RN utilizes a physiological approach to teach the terminology involving fluids and electrolytes as well as the need for acid/base balance in the body. Disturbances of these properties, how the imbalance may affect the various systems of the body, and consequent disease states are additional areas that are covered. This valuable resource also takes a comprehensive look at the cell membrane and the distribution of solutes in and out of the cell." Fluid and Electrolytes facilitates learning of this important, yet complex, topic in nursing. The inclusion of examination questions and in-depth nursing implications makes this resource perfect for professionals looking to develop an understanding of fluids and electrolytes.
